to lecture senator dianne feinstein about guns. she has a bill that would restore the assault weapons ban which expired. and as our colleague rachel maddow pointed out last night, this ban might have prevented the newtown shooter from getting a buschmaster assault rifle. why is it that republicans say they share your concern about gun violence, but whenever there's an opportunity to do something, they simply turn and walk in the opposite direction? >> yes. the irony is that this is an extraordinary example of political cowardace by people like ted cruz and those who are so easily swintimidated by the nra. senator feinstein has tremendous courage, as well as being one of the sharpest intellects in the united states senate. the vast majority of her colleagues know that. cruz is a newbie. perhaps he doesn't realize the kind, the level of respect that has been earned from senator feinstein's colleagues. but to do that, what it did was really to marginalize senator cruz. now, clearly he's trying to stake out a political position to the right of the republican party and it keeps getting more an
